  1. Countdown to the beginning of a new Era!

    Good morning faithful readers (and possible detractors),

    I decided after yesterday's 'stuff' that I would start afresh with a positive post.

    Today is the 31st! By all accounts the Closed Beta begins tomorrow. Details have not come from Kyle yet, but hopefully they'll come later today.

    I'm surprised how excited I am to see and play the game. This is like the day before your birthday, especially when you suspect that someone is going to throw you a surprise ...

  2. Game Design and the Lowest Common Denominator

    I'm probably going to regret this, because there's an old adage that says "never post after midnight". That saying exists because of the propensity to say something unpleasant that you'll regret in the morning.

    On the other hand, I said I would chronicle my Shadow Era Beta experience. I just didn't expect to feel so irritated so early, and before the Beta actually began.

    Hello Everyone! Today I have an interesting entry for all to see; an interview with the one, the only, Kyle! Enjoy!

    Re: Blog question
    1. How did you come up with the idea for Shadow Era?

    I have always been interested in TGCs since the first edition of Magic: The Gathering. Although there was never anybody to play with in my small town, I still had a huge collection of cards and enjoyed looking at the card art and creating decks. Actually, I don't think I ever ...
  5. Flavor text competition?

    I don't know if it's just me, but something seems to be lacking in the flavor texts on all the cards. Personally, I think that people could respond to the COTD thread with really cool flavor ideas, and then Kyle could pick the best one to actually go on the card in the game. Comment with your thoughts!
